The Sound of Sovereignty

Who builds his upper chambers in the heavens and founds his vault upon the earth; who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out upon the surface of the earth— the Lord is his name. {Amos 9:6}

Yesterday I went for a walk near the water and as usual I saw… but this time I heard.


The sound of each wave crashing up on the rocks.  The swishing sounds of the current.  The crackle of the tide.

These are the sounds of sovereignty.

Not one part of it can be controlled.  A high surf advisory can’t be scaled back and each swell speaks of His power.  A rip tide will take you where you don’t want to go while the calm will carry you as though you are weightless.

Listen closely to each unique note. Each crescendo and every low note tells of His majesty.  Billions of drops are a result of His creativity… the same creativity He has to solve the unsolvable, to do the impossible.

These are the sounds of God’s unrestricted power, the sounds reminding us He still hovers.


He can tame it, part it and make it so still that Peter could walk upon it.  Every storm can be silenced by a word and although we have seen some storms are tragic, devastating and destructive, none of them are a surprise to Him.  He holds each drop with a breath and knows where everyone belongs.  He gives life to every creature that dwells under its rim and at the same time counts the hairs on your head.

Look as far out as you possibly can and know your sins are further removed than what your eye can hold.

Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand and marked off the heavens with a span, enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure and weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance? {Isaiah 40:12}
